Description Kay Sievers 2011-07-26 17:47:00 UTC
Hey Jon,

please drop:
They are not needed anymore.

Please drop:
It's totally outdated, has a lot of no longer useful things in it.
If any, the remaining stuff belongs into the kernel modules, not as
paper-over in userspace config.

If needed, I can take care to add that to the kernel, if anything
in that list is really needed.

Please move:
Admins should be able to mask the file with their own file in /etc.

Also please remove the /usr/local/ thing from the upstream code,
no early boot tool should look in /usr/local.

Oh, and please also make sure to add /lib/modprobe.d to the dirs owned by m-i-t, so that other packages can drop files in there, if they need to.

Thanks for the ping. This bug was assigned to another account and I fixed that. I'll take a look (but note I am out of the office Mon-Wed next week).

Ping again! It's getting boring.

Comment 6 Lennart Poettering 2011-08-31 00:16:26 UTC
Ping Ping!

Comment 7 Jon Masters 2011-08-31 18:18:56 UTC

I've built fixes for this stuff. You will need to get hwdata changed since it owns the blacklist.conf file (for historical reasons) to move it to /lib/modprobe.d rather than /etc/modprobe.d.
